17th Annual Conference of the International Society for Neoplatonic Studies

Conference dates: June 12-16, 2019 - Dominican University College / Department of Philosophy, University of Ottawa
Deadline for Call for Papers: February 25, 2019

We are pleased to announce the call for panels for the 17th annual conference of the International Society for Neoplatonic Studies. The conference will be held at Dominican University College in Ottawa from June 12-16, 2019.

Papers can touch on all aspects of the philosophy of Plotinus or Neoplatonism, more generally. Participants can either organize panels or present a paper that does not fall under the theme of a panel.

All abstracts, whether individual or for inclusion in panels, are due by February 25, 2019. Papers may be presented in English, Portuguese, French, German, Spanish, or Italian.  It is recommended that those delivering papers in languages other than English provide printed copies to their audience at the conference.

Please note that anyone giving a paper at the conference must be a member of the ISNS. You may sign up and pay dues on the web site of the Philosophy Documentation Center: https://www.pdcnet.org/isns/International-Society-for-Neoplatonic-Studies-(ISNS)

Dues are $60.00 per year ($20.00 for students and retirees).   

Participants may give only one paper at the conference and therefore should submit only one abstract.

If you have any questions about the program, registration, or location of the conference, please email Mark Nyvlt (protrepticuseide@gmail.com).

Questions about ISNS policies should be addressed to me at john-finamore@uiowa.edu
